About Me:
unoffical occupation: since 2009 I've been care-giving for 3 of my quite ailing a live-in helper (in every way conceivable).

Life Member of The National Geographic Society. I became very interested in the Society itself during the 1988 year when I was but 10. Became a proud member myself for my 12th birthday, January 1990. At last I didn't have to wait for my Grandparents to be done with their issues and give them to me : )
Favorite National Geographic publication:
Hard to narrow down, but especially the vintage 1910-1920's era, and also the wonderful 1988 Centennial year.
Favorite travel destination:
my beautiful state!

Sounds great Scott,
I always enjoy talking with NG collectors & hearing about their experiences. I'm retired and available to chat quite often. I've been a NG member & collector since 1978. Hope to chat soon.

I actually just discovered this website a few weeks ago. It's very cool - I don't really have any particular interests in NG. I've been a fan my whole life, my Dad has an extensive collection and now I'm working on mine.

I had a gold border and used the words "National Geographic" on the website. So I got the nasty letter.

Were you still interested in buying an April 1913 volume, is this for someone you are in contact or for personal collection? Recently aquired a complete set from 1911 to date

I haven't been on the site for a few weeks, went to the Custer WI Renewable Energy Fair on Friday. Many plans will be in the following months & years and will try to make an imact with alternatives. For Geographics, it will take a while to sort everything out and start with major projects.
